>>> next on "this week in defense news," a roundtable discussion about the future of u.s. military energy use with >>> welcome to "this week in defense news." i'm vago muradian. the u.s. military is the world's largest user of energy. last year consuming some 5 billion gallons of fuel at a cost of nearly $13 billion, 255% more than it spent in 1997. equally important is that protecting that fuel has cost lives. in afghanistan alone, the defense logistics agency is moving 40 million gallons of fuel each month in convoys that have to be defended against attacks. between 2003 and 2007 alone, 3,000 soldiers and contractors were killed or wounded protecting fuel supply lines in iraq and afghanistan. those casualties spurred a major pentagon tribe to develop alternative energy sources while also improving the energy efficiency from everything from future weapons. culminating in the first-ever d.o.d. strategy aim at changing how the department thinks and uses energy. october is energy awareness month and we figured this would be a good idea to get some of the pentagon's top energy minds
